Reading movement: translations from ms to dance hall
- Viscountess Celemon Gwynedd ( Kristina Hildebrand)
- Music Room on Friday at 1:45PM
How do we translate a text into movement? What do we know about body language in the Middle Ages? What are the things we need to think about when reading manuscripts on dancing? This class will start from recent work on gesture and body language in the Middle Ages, and discuss what that might mean to our understanding of medieval and Renaissance dance.
